    i wonder if anyone can help me..I love my galaxy w but i have a serious problem with the gps..when i use wi-fi and data packet i get a lock in seconds..but when i use only gps then i never can get a lock.I mean i have this phone for a month and i have never managed to get a lock without wi-fi or packet data..i hve tried downloading many apps like gpsfix but i get nothing.also with the gpstest i can never find a satelite..can it be a hardware issue?thank you for your reply in advance

    Are you using it outside? I get a fix very quickly outside but very rarely get a fix indoors unless I'm right next to a window.

    GPS first time user, turn On the gps for more than 15 min or so. It should be done outside of a building. If u are in car, leave the mobile phone on top of the dashboard by the side of ur windscreen. It would ease to detect and lock the satellite.
